The Rose Duelist's Ring of Shoujo Kakumei Utena

Updated on November 9, 2011

The Rose Signet in Revolutionary Girl Utena is the mark of a Duelist

Once upon a time, there was a little princess who was very sad, for her parents had passed away. A travelling prince on a white horse appeared before her, gently wiped away her tears, and gave her a ring. "Little one," he said, "growing up alone in such sorrow, never lose your nobility or your strength, even when you grow up."

Perhaps the ring was meant as an engagement ring. That was good, but the princess was so impressed by the prince, she vowed to become a prince herself one day.

The movie version is slightly different from the TV series version. The rose is similar, but the circle surrounding it has 4 points on the sides.

薔薇の刻印~空中庭園の花嫁 from the Adolescence Apocalypse soundtrack. This is the song that plays when Utena finds her ring in the film.

Where to Buy Utena Rings

Official rings

The official Japanese MOVIC rings are nearly impossible to find. eBay and Yahoo Japan auctions will be your best bet. (Note that you will most likely have to use a Japanese shopping service to buy from Yahoo Japan.) You might have some luck at Rakuten as well. (Check regularly. Like auction sites, Rakuten lets independent sellers offer their items for sale, so you might get lucky here, too.)

Tip: Use the search term 少女革命ウテナ to find Utena products on Japanese sites. The phrase for the rose signet is 薔薇の刻印
